y husband and I celebrated my bday by dining at South Edison. I was looking forward to the meal based on all the glowing reviews. Unfortunately, our meal was very lackluster.
First, although there were plenty of staff on hand, I found service to be chaotic and disorganized. There were more than 4 people who were working our table and no one had any idea what the others were doing.
We started with drinks-- my prosecco came to me in a broken flute glass. The rim was quite jagged and so I asked the waitress to bring me a new glass. My husband had a margarita, which was mostly ice. The appetizers were good-- octopus tacos and baked clams. They were probably the best dishes of the night.
For entrees, my husband had the local striped bass and I had the grilled lobster with creamy couscous. Both dishes were over-salted. He wasn't a fan of his but I thought mine was okay. The couscous with mushrooms was tasty although the overly dressed frisee salad did nothing to complement the dish.
We shared the pineapple upside down cake with passion fruit sorbet for dessert. The cake itself was quite nice but the sorbet was too tart (and this is coming from someone who ADORES passionfruit.)
All in all, it was an okay dining experience but probably not worth the $180 bill.
